The Vice Chancellor of America Internet Business School Dr. Ope Banwo, has challenged the Federal...
Ope Banwo, fumed at the Federal Government and the Ministry of Education over non inclusion of certain new courses in the tertiary institutions syllabus. He made this known at the just concluded Nigeria Internet Business Conference which was held at the Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, where he talked about how young Nigerians can generate legal money on the internet.
According to Banwo "Nigeria varsity system syllabus is archaic and misused. "Why are we not having E-commerce, Freelancing, Blogging, Affiliate and Digital Marketing included in the Nigeria University syllabus? As the internet is becoming larger, youth are supposed to be growing with it. But otherwise is what we have in Nigeria, even youth that grew with the internet used it on illegal businesses". He said.
He further stated that he has forwarded a petition to the current Nigeria Education minister Adamu Adamu, on need for a revised syllabus in universities nationwide.
Meanwhile, to put in his quota to online business development, Ope Banwo, is inaugurating an internet business club - 'Netpreneur club' on campuses across the country. He recently launched the Netpreneur Club at the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, where Lukmon Fasasi, emerged to be the club interim president.
